spending. shannon bream is live in sterling, virginia, just outside washington, which was a big swing area in 2008 with voters. what will republicans say this morning? shannon, good morning there. >> reporter: good morning, bill. they're going to roll out this pledge with america and whenty do that this morning we're going to hear more about what you talked about, a lot of folks saying what are you going to do, they're talking about what they're going to undo. we're getting a look at the first formal pledge here by jay gibson, our producer. here's a first look at what they're going to say but it's as much about undoing things as much as doing things, getting rid *t health care bill, repealing tax hikes and basically getting government out of business. we talked to senator bacchus and here's what he said. >> too big to fail is not about america. america is about people and opportunity. it's not about taking from the people and redirecting that to go to the government. >> gop says the government has overstepped, their plan is to reign it back in, bill. bill: we have heard that theme but the

this morning, larry sabato is the director of the center for politics at the university of virginia and we know that you don't go with your feelings, you've been doing a lot of home work on all of this, larry, and we're glad to have you with us this morning, welcome. >> thank you martha. i also can't sing, so that's another reason. martha: we're told to rely on the numbers, right? i hear you there. i hear you there. all right, let's talk about this. we've seen a change, an uptick in the numbers of republican seats that you see getting picked up here, house, senate, and also, on the governor level. what do you think has changed since that election? >> fundamentally it's the economy but a lot of other things. obviously it happened over the summer. this summer has been a disaster for democrats, almost everything has gone wrong for them, the bottom has fallen out, you stressed senate and house. i think the most significant returns are actually at the gubernatorial level, the state legislative level. i hope people will go, by the way, to center for politics.org and click on the crystal ball and read
't want to purchase. when the same lawsuit was filed in virginia, by the attorney general of virginia, ken keusch cuccinelli, that's been on your show, a federal judge in virginia appointed by a democratic president said when the government tried to dismiss the case, you know what, the attorney general of virginia is right, congress has never done this before, she have a -- they have a very strong argument to say it doesn't have this power, i'm not going to dismiss the indicate -- the case. so the passer in florida, a lawsuit, joined by 19 other states, the federal government doesn't reply with an answer, it replies with an appeal to dismiss the lawsuit so, the judge will only dismiss the lawsuit if there's no legal basis for it whatsoever. there is. martha: will it be let's move on to the next step? >> correct. the next step will then be a legal analysis of the history of the commerce clause and whether the constitution was written to give congress this kind of power. for example, suppose the congress declares that the sun causes skin cancer. that would be a reasonable statement to make.
virginia beach, up towards washington. this is a triple threat. not only are we going to get heavy rain, we're going to get high winds and the threat for foreign aidoes, the tornado watch in effect for tarts of the mid atlantic towards the northeast, d.c., parts of new jersey, tornado watch for you until 1:00 p.m. local time. they will probably extend that watch throughout the afternoon up towards the northeast. it is going to be a mess, it's going to be hard to get home today. if you have a flight, be prepared to either wait in the terminal or take -- make a lot of phone calls to see if your flight is delayed or canceled. martha, back to you. martha: from new jersey, that is something you don't hear of every day. janice, thank you very much. this nasty weather is making it tough to get around. thanks. there's a mess in the air and on the rails, up and down the east coast. what better to do in this situation? i say go live on the plaza in the pouring rain. peter, how is it out there? >> reporter: calm before the storm. but all that rain is already causing tons of problems for people up and

eastern virginia and then again, come friday, a threat to southeast new england, mainly the cape. a little early to tell specifically for the cape, but they're doing the right thing in the carolinas, getting the tourists out of the area. bill: it's moving at a pretty quick clip. 16 miles an hour, that's almost lightning speed for a storm this size. what are you telling the folks in north carolina that are watching now? >> reporter: well, it's actually a fairly typical speed as one comes down there and i don't think it will speed up a whole lot until it gets even with them. the watches that are currently in effect are going to have to be upgraded sometime today to a warning. they're doing all the right actions, they've been getting the people alerted as of yesterday, and they're starting to move the high risk communities that only have one way out and flood at a very low tide, they're already having those folks move, so i think we're in good shape on the sense of what the threat is in the market carolina, southeast virginia area. bill: bill, thank you very much. i know you guys are working
of west virginia, he wants to be a democratic senator, just yesterday, he came out and said tax cuts should be held in place. he joins people like joe lieberman, ben nelson of nebraska, bill nelson of florida, jim webb of virginia, all these are moderate democrats. how do you buck that trend when these people are drib ling out by the day? >> you're exactly right, bill. if the conservative -- the conservative democrats are worried, they understand that what's been driving this conversation for the longest time has been that the white house has not been paying sufficient attention to the economy, that the unemployment numbers remain high, and that most americans are pessimistic about what the future holds, and this is everything from the tax hike to the decifit. but for the moment, what we saw last week was the president going on the offensive and saying where are the ideas, where is the help coming from with republicans and the white house has forced congressman boehner to say he would agree to tax cuts even if it meant the tax cuts for the rich weren't coming through. that as you kno
in virginia closing three years after the fed starts moving to phase out light bulbs, ordering government buildings to use fluorescent bulbs to save energy. my next guest thinks that the plan backfired and people are going to lose their jobs from this factory. it's congressman joe barton. this caught our eye. it encapsulate as number of issues out there right now. why are you fighting to save the indan des -- incandescent light bulb? >> they're cheaper, environmentally correct and we think consumers ought to make the correct choice, especially middle and low income americans, they can't afford four, $5 light bulbs when you can get the old fashioned light bulb for 40, 50 cents a pop. martha: but part of the action is to say that the government won't purchase incandescent light bulbs nip. it doesn't mean the rest of us can't. >> it also says it can't be sold as retail in the united states. martha: they can't be sold anywhere after -- when is this going to go into effect? >> 2014. so we want to repeal it. this is indicative of the overreach that the obama administration, mrs. pelosi and majo
for politics at the university of virginia and joins me, good to have you here. i want to play for folks who tuned in with the interview with christine o'donnell, and i wanted your thoughts on that race. >> my opponent has a liberal record that does not resonate with the people and had to resort to dirty true u-tricks and mud slinging but i'm confidents, the polls reflect the voters are seeing right through it. martha: what are the polls telling you about the race. >> it is very, very close, and the republicans face a conundrum in delaware, tomorrow night. essentially, their choice is this: they can pick christine o'donnell with whom i think they agree on more issues, she's clearly more conservative, than the other candidate, congressman mike castle, who is a moderate to liberal republican, and the problem is, delaware is a democratic state. and, every poll i have seen, public and private, suggests that mike castle will win the seat in november, defeating democrat chris kuhns, and christine o'donnell will probably lose the seat in november and it is a conundrum, do you go with the candidate
mean, the state of virginia, you know very well a few weeks ago in that primary vote, you were up, what, 35 percent in a republican turnout over last time? >> huge. bill: that's substantial. >> you're going to have -- there's no doubt in my mind you're going to have a very big republican turnout and much of it if not most of it will be a protest vote. protest votes are very powerful motivation, not to be underestimated and apathy in midterms with the party in power is also a very distinct problem that occurs tile and again, particularly when times are bad, and times remain bad in the eyes of most americans. americans weren't loving the way the economy was growing when it was growing in the middle years of the bush administration, they certainly aren't happy with it now and they're not going to be happy any time soon. these measures taken now by the president i don't think are going to have any noticeable effect. bill: we'll debate if this in 30 minutes with doug schoen and brad blakeman. good to see you. >> i hope so. juliet: such a cool guy. >>> tropical storm hermine barreling into th
running for election, glenn nye out of virginia says it costs too much, stephanie sandler out of -- she was it was not right for south dakota, jason altmeier, pennsylvania, the pittsburgh area, the quote says he's not afraid to stand up to the president, and nancy pelosi. that's pretty -- >> yeah, these are people who voted against it. and remember, a democratic victory, they were very happy about a special election in pennsylvania's 12th district was won by a democrat who ran against health care. so this is not something that they're bragging about, and remember, this was something they portrayed as the achievement of a generation. bill: why are they not bragging? >> because you -- >> because you have to go back to april, when the last time you found anyone -- we've been talking a lot about the house so far. but whether it's house democrats or senate democrats, april and hay reid was the last ad you saw on a campaign. >> right. remember the plan was the major parts of obamacare don't go into effect until 2014, the plan was to talk about the aspects of it that do go into effect, like st
they'll have a roundtable at a lumber company, outside of washington here in virginia and they'll have small business owners who sit at the table, the man who owns the lumber yeard, his wife, an attorney and, a salesman and, someone in software development, and here's points we know they'll hit on in the so-called governing document, they'll roll out, job creation, at this top of everybody is a list and republicans will outline what they propose to make it happen and also something they have been fighting for, extending the bush tax cuts, for everyone, across the board, all income levels and, also, something we hear they may include, a 72-hour mandatory reading period, for bills that are put together, have to get posted and members have to have a chance to read them before they get to the floor for a vote, 20 items in all, we'll have details tomorrow morning. martha. martha: three days may not be wrong enough to read the bills we have seen coming through the past year, so, democrats haven't really seen this yet but how -- are they responding to what they have heard so far. >> reporter:
in northern virginia which seems obvious there, speak to small business, find out what you need, find out how you can help them. what i have not seen and what i've read so far is appealing to social issues. have they been sidelined in 2010? >> they've not been sidelined. social issues are always important in the political process. i think it's safe to say when you ask voters today, top of mind response, what's the most pressing issue facing the country today, they'll say jobs and the economy, probably followed closely by debt and excessive federal spending. but i think one of the things that's been clear from this document, from what we've seen of it, and it's not all out there obviously, but from what i understand, that the focus will be on jobs, economy, national issues, and it's not a full two-year governing document, it's to say here's what we're going to do when we first get control because these are priorities, and i think you have to prioritize the most important function for the majority is scheduling on the floor of the house what bills you're going to bring and what republicans are
